Ok, it seems I can't stay away from my blog for an entire weekend. I tried. I really did. But R is working today, the living room and kitchen are just about as clean as they ever get, and V is playing happily with her Baby Chloe - so what's a girl to do?
While V was jumping into piles of leaves the other day, I found this leaf on the ground.
It had a cocoon in the curve of the back of it. I set it down to rest under a bush.
You might remember the poor, old crabapple tree from this summer. Well, here's what she looks like in November.
There are only a few apples left, rotting beneath the tree. But the crazycool knots are still there.
And the woodpecker lovebites.
Looks very different now with all its leaves gone.
She's moody and grey. She's mean and she's restless. Five dollars if you can tell me the name of that song.
Ok, not five dollars. But definitely a wow, I thought I'd be the only one.
For more beautiful black and whites, see Liss' lovely flower in her starting-from-scratch garden, yellow-leaved trees and such a big boy! from Shelli, Keri gives us shadows, Elizabeth shares some heavy machinery, Cloudscome has a motorcycle and the light of life, and Toni's photo is set to a Longfellow poem.
Have you been posting your black and white photos but not seeing them here? Maybe you forgot to email me (or leave a comment) with the link! Let me know and I'll link to yours ASAP.
And if you'd like to join in, there are still 21 days left in November. Plenty of time.
